3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft served in a pint glass at Bakersfield. Pours a deep, mostly clear amber color with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted chocolate and brown sugar, dried leaves, and very mild ancho chiles. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with a malty, earthy mouthfeel that isnít spicy until late. Low-to-moderate carbonation. Went well enough with our Mexican food.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured deep garnety-amber with a tall, creamy, well-retained eggshell head. The aroma picked up toasted biscuits and rye bread with accents of sweet cocoa and toasty chiles.. too much sugar in the end for me. The flavor found sweet caramel and lesser cocoa at the core with toasted chilis and vanilla around.. finished with a pinch of peppers and raw, earthy sugar. Light-medium bodied and sweet on the palate.. the chilis helped interesting it up, but it was far from great.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft. Poured a clear light brown color. The head was thin and off white. Cloying diacetyl dominated the aroma. There were also whiffs of nondescript spices. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Buttery caramel and spice flavors with a hint of chocolate. No chile pepper to speak of in my opinion.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Smells like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Tastes like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Not as overpowering as some of the other ancho chile in it. Might be a good into to spicy beer. Otherwise, not a whole lot going on in this one.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, dark, wet copper with a tall, thick, tan head.
Scent is spiced caramel....sugar...
Taste is caramel....chilis are noticeable but not overblown.....
Increasing peppery tones as it warms and finishes.
An interesting little oddity....well worth a try.

17 nov 2012, bottle. Nut brown, clear. Nose is sickly sweet malt, maybe some grape jelly. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet caramel malt. Really sickly caramel malt. Ugh.

Medium brown color with a beige head. Spicy chili aroma with some malty undertones. Dry, spicy finish. Not in love with this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear brown/copper color with a decent beige head. Smells soapy. Aroma has chili, light caramel malts, with a touch of cocoa and perhaps some hops. Medium body with more spice than carbonation. Something interesting, local, and different, but Iím not sure if Iíll try it again.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle w/ twist off cap. Sterile vanilla aroma. Brown liquid. Quite strong on the taste buds, a new strong sensation. Hah, a pretty good craft beer from minhas. A little too strong for me but I bet youíll like it.
